When I was younger, I lived on skates – both roller skates and ice skates. I’d skate on the sidewalk,in the road (it was common then) and at the park. I’d ice skate at the rink as soon as it opened in the fall and then all winter long. Skating gives you the feeling of gliding and that’s something you just can’t describe. Heelys gets why people crave that feeling. And the Heelys HX2, with 2 wheels, makes it easier for beginners to get the hang of skating so they can get their skating high faster.

More about the Heelys HX2 – The 2 removable wheels make it easier to maintain balance. As you practice and feel more comfortable skating, you can remove one wheel. And as with all Heelys, remove both wheels and you have a normal pair of shoes. There’s also the original Heelys with one wheel and the Nano, which is an inline skateboard.
About skating with Heelys – Just because I’ve skated a lot when I was younger, I couldn’t put on Heelys and just figure it out for myself. I needed to watch the How To Skate Video, which teaches you about finding your balance and the correct use of your Heelys. They are a bit different than other types of roller skates, but once you are “Heeling” it’s a perfect ride! Don’t forget to wear protective gear and skate on a smooth surface. Heelys Playbook provides you with other important safety tips.
I was provided with a pair of Heelys HX2 Jazzy for review. All opinions are my own.
